Nikon D850 as a High Quality Black and White Camera? (and better than M Monochrom Type 246 for sure)

See my Nikon wish list and get Nikon D850 at B&H Photo.

Back in 2015 I wrote Heresy: Canon 5DS R as a Black and White Camera Better Than Leica M Monochrom Type 246?.

For a comparison, see Canon 5DS R is a Sharper and More Versatile Monochrome Camera than Leica M Monochrom Typ 246.

So now I think that the Nikon D850 has the same promise. Want monochrome quality better than Leica MM? Get a Nikon D850, shoot in color, convert to B&W after the shot with a staggering number of approaches that can bring out tonal differences that the MM cannot (it cannot record color differences at all, a filter or no filter bakes-in the tonal mappings between colors). Downsample to 24 megapixels just to make the point (the Leica MM resolution), go gaga at the incredible detail and quality.

The more I look at the Nikon D850 and what it can deliver at 45 megapixels, the more I like it for black and white. I’ll be showing some examples of black and white conversions from Nikon D850 images. IMO, it rocks.

Below, toggle for the color version.
